Every year, students who have already started at Meredith have the opportunity to apply and interview for mid-year admission to the Honors Program. The day before classes started, Honors professors and students met and interviewed this year’s mid-year applicants. We’re so excited to welcome our new Honors sisters: Allison Copeland, Haneen Ahmad, Mercy Rialem, Alla Akiyeva, and Amy Poonnak! In order to introduce them to you, we’ve asked them to share their favorite quotes. After all, what better way to get to know someone than by finding out what inspires them?
Allison Copeland: “To be yourself in a world that is constantly trying to make you something else is the greatest accomplishment.”- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Haneen Ahmed: “If God should aid you, no one can overcome you.” – Quran
Mercy Rialem: “Where there is a will there is a way”.
Alla Akiyeva: “The best way out is always through.” – Robert Frost
Amy Poonnak: “Mistakes are proof that you are trying.”
If you haven’t met them yet, take a moment to send them a welcoming message and let them know how excited their sister Honors students are to have then!
